THAT MAN FROM PERTH. (Written for the SUNDAY TIMES.) "Perth, Jan. 15, 1897. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 6 February 1898
THAT MAN FROM PERTH. BY W. C. THOMAS. (Written for the SUNDAY TIMES.) " Perth, Jan. 15,1897. " Dear Madam, " Hearing through a friend that you had room for a boarder for a few days, will you kindly reserve it for self from Thursday morning. I propose staying in Albany a few days. " Tours truly, " WILFRED M'LURE. " Mrs. Whisham, Albany." * # # Mrs. Whisham was an impecunious lady,-who had taken to the keeping of boarders as a preventive of absolute penury. Her style was homely-plain, but clean and unostentatious. She, too, was plain, but energetic and cheerful. Smiles many} and oft left her otherwise unattractive features, and many people who had contact with her mistook these smiles for elements of beauty, and there were occasions when she was called pre- possessing. . Mrs. Wisham was not lacking in cer- tain qualities that make for popularity. She was voted clever-that is, she was supposed to know how many bews make five. Money was worth at least fifteen per cent, more to Mrs. W hi...
RHYME AND REASON. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 6 February 1898
RHYME AND REASON. The rhyme given hereunder seems to be. somewhat appropriate to the attitude assumed by certain lessees in connection with the pre- sent alluvial dispute : THE SONG OP THE MODEST MONOPOLIST. My wants are few ; I sit serene .Upon contentment's nigh-lands. If I can have earth's continente, I care not for its islands. I would not climb upon a throne Through seas of bloody slaughter. If I can call all lands my own. Why yon-can have tine water. And all I ask is just this earth, To regulate and man it, And r-sttrrender all my claims To every other planet. And so, you see, I cut my cloth On a contracted pattern. . Give me the earth ; I drop all claim To Uranus and Saturn. Little I need, my wants are few, Nor would I have them greater, I only want the land between The poles and the Equator. ; Give me the Earth-'tis all I ask For me and my wife Sarah, -Then 1*11 give my fellow-men '. An area in Sahara ! - . ? * . # * ; The so-called Opposition print has, in pursuit of its us...
TURF TATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 6 February 1898
TURF TATTLE. Between the waits for events and the weights for the varions races therein, things have calmed down a bit. The horses and trainers turn out on the track morning after morning' as usual, and go through their respective one and a half miles, or " flying spins," and their criticising, bnt alas !-not nnder the public eye. The truthful tout is not there to send up glowing reports on Slow- coach's performance, or to describe how Snailshell beat Tortoise (Tayle up) over a six furlong scamper. But perhaps the trainers don't miss their prying, spying, lying fraternity so much after all. * # # The autumn meeting of the W.A.T.C., to be held next month, will probably comprise the usual half-a-dozen races. It is to hoped that the meeting will give us a better show for oar money than the Anniversary proceedings, which were about as tame as a two weeks'-old kitten.. The railway authorities are gradually breaking themselves of their objectionable habit of send- ing us out to our race m...

PUBLIC LETTERS TO PUBLIC MEN. [No. 8.] [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 6 February 1898
PUBLIC LETTERS TO PUBLIC MEN. [Np. a] Once again to the Hon. E. H. WITTENOOM, M.L.C., etc., etc. Dear Sirj I little imagined when I ad- dressed myself to yon last week that I should so soon have to con- fer upon you the honour of a second epistle. Even your worst enemy-which I am far from be- ing-could not have imagined that you would have made such an utterly ineffable ass of yourself. This may sound a trifle coarse, but the truth is often built that way. I pointed out to you in my last letter that yonr proceedings as Minister for Mines had already very justly exposed voa to a good deal of odium, but it never entered into my wildest imaginings to sup- pose that you were even then con- templating an action which for both folly and immorality is pro- bably without a parallel in the history of mining legislation. * * # What are the facts of the case ? Some very particular friends of yours, and of the Ministry, in- cluding Mr. C. J. Moran and others, hold a lease which they call the Iv...
THE FOURTH TEST MATCH. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 6 February 1898
THE FOURTH TEST MATCH. I bave little desire to add to tb volumes of stuff now beinj written or already in print abon tbe Test Match just concluded but a few remarks on this im portant game, which bas agaij brought those " ashes" out to Ans tralia, are certain to be demandée of THE TJMPIÄB. Frankly, the bes team won, bnt it had the best luck Had it not been for Hill, thingi would have gone very hardly witi the Au8ttalians in their first in nings, who, with that bright par- ticular exception, could do nothing; with Hearne and Richardson. At a batsman, I rank the young Sontti Australian third after *' Bobby ' Abel and the, great McLaren foi reliability, yand next to 4t Ran j i " at his best for brilliancy, while, in the next couple of years, if he will only look after himself, he should stand a bead clear over any other batsman iu the world. # # * In the second innings of Austra- lia, the Englishmen, who had pre- viously had to leave out Hirst, owing to his having ricked his side, were...
No III. PLEASURE BOATS FOR PERTH WATERS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 6 February 1898
No III. PLEASURE BOATS POE PERTH WATERS. To those who are more fond of pleasuring than racing, there could not be found a more beautiful river thau our Swan. All through the bummer yon can leave home in the morning and run down to any part of the river with a free sheet, have your day's fishing, etc., and in the afternoon you have a free sheet home again. Let me suggest to those plea- sure-trippers a craft that is easily handled, either pulling or sailing, and can be built at a low figure. The yawl type I will begin with say, 16ft., with 5.9 beam, and 18in. deep, with mainmast in the eye of the boat, and a jigger aft. A boat of this description may be seen in Mr, H. W. Gibbs' Psyche, which is not ouly fast, but stiff, and easy to handle. An addition may be made in the shape of a little deck forward. The next type is that of the "cat" boat, which has only one sail in the bow, thus leaving the whole leugth of the boat for accom- modation. These boats are very safe indeed, especially i...
WESTRALIAN MINING AND THE RAND. A COMPARISON. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 6 February 1898
WESTRALIAN MINING AND THE RAND. . A COMPARISON. V (BT UITLANDEB.) Since the dissovery of the banket -formation on the Band, no other gold -exploitation has raised more interest -throughout the world than that of this - colony, and although the circumstances under which the two industries are .carried on differ to so great a degree, a - comparison between them cannot fail to be of interest. In one re- spect there is a remarkable simili- tude between the country ruled by -Oom Paul and that governed by Oom Jan. The mining industry raise.l 'both into importance, and it is upon it that are based not only the prosperity of the present, bnt also all hope for the future. This being the case, the ex- perience gained in the older centre . should be somewhat of a guide in the newer one. Curious again is it to note "how in mining, as in everything else, history ever repeats itself.. In 1885 the áirst gold on the Rand was discovered, -and then followed a period of wild in : nation, recalling mem...

LIKES WRONG AGAIN. ALL WIRES DOWN. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 13 February 1898
LIKES WRONG AGAIN. ALL WIRES DOWN. We have just received (6.30 p.m.) I the following from onr telegraph agents :-'' Owing to line being inter- rupted, and to the accumulations of telegraph business, we have been un- able to get any news of the Caulfield races (Futurity Stakes) from Adelaide, Melbourne, and Sydney, up to the present Apropos of the Bathurst burr. One of our correspondents at Fremantle over three weeks ago drew the atten- tion of a high official in the Govern- ment service to the fact that this weed infested the cattle yards at Fast Fre- mantle. Apparently no attention was paid to the information, and we now find the growth in West Northam. Quite pardonable in West Australia, so let it pass.

A BENEFACTOR TO THE RACE. In another column will be fonnd an advertisement relating to the marvel- lous success which has attended the celebrated Danish Herbalist, Herr Sassmussen, in his treatment of blood, nerve, and skin diseases. It will pay any ailing or uiifortunate person to try it. Herr Eassmussen was the first man to recognise the wonderful value of vegetable cures which, in contrthea tinction to medical remedies, leav system clear and invigorated, instedof wasted and debilitated.
SOLILOQUY. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 13 February 1898
SOLILOQUY. Had 1 but wings, Fd soar on high, And bathe in light beyond the sky; Where Angels' paseos softly fall, With Triune Godhead over all. Where .¿Solían harps with ceaseless strain, Attune the great Creator's name ; Where garlands of our manhood's youth Co-mingle with the God of Truth. Why linger in terrestrial spheres, 'Midst doubt, deception, rankling fears, Where fond hearts changeas years maj pass, Like roses in the winter's blast ? Alas ! that man be doom'd to sigh, And only hear the songs from high (Whilst yearning for the brighter state) When all the world seems desolate. Alas, that only as a dream Should come the shadow-outlined gleam. Thro' lonely hour in silent night. Of all thafs fair, divinely bright ! Could I but reach with out-stretched hand, The Light, the Love, the Promised Land, I'd yield me now my latest breath, And kiss the worldly grasp of death ! A. E. VINCENT.

THE GREY DAWN. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 13 February 1898
THE G BEY DAWN. The sullen dawn in the east comes creeping, Grey and heavy with woes of the day; The love I most lose lies softly sleeping, With never a dream that can bring dismay. And it's well that my love lies sleep- ing, sleeping, Lulled with dreams, at the break of the day That shall hear, ere it end, her bitter weeping For that love that is over, joy that's away. The public will do well in trying "The Oroya Tea Rooms," for a nice cold lunch, when every delicacy can be obtained, also the very best comfort and attention. The . rooms are under the supervision of Mrs. Haughton Bell and Miss Hunt, who both seem to thor- oughly understand the business. We are glad to hear that the rooms are being largely patronised, and as they are in a «entrai position (just over Pearson's buildings, High-st., Fre- mantle), no doubt the business people particularly will find these tea rooms a great boon, with a delightful cool bal- cony, where the fragrant weed can be indulged in after luncheon.

THE WRONGS OF ALLUVIAL MIN RS. WHAT THE KANOWNA DEMOCRAT THINKS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 13 February 1898
THE WRONGS OF ALLUVIAL MIN RS. WHAT THE KANOWNA DEMOCRAT THINKS. The Kanowna Democrat, published at the capital of the alluvial industry, has the following, which we reprint, be- cause our metropolitan contemporaries are not likely to do 60 : At no time since the opening up of the goldfields has there been such danger of the colony being divided against itself as at the present hour. We know what must be the fate of a house, or any other social institution, which has had the ill-luck to be divided into opposing factions. Yet this is the trend of the present policy of. the Ministry. The man who, either by folly or crime, would attempt to create discord and division in the house of the humblest peasant, is not only a danger- ous member of society, but a miscreant who ought to be put ou; side society's pale. The State possesses all the attributes of a well constituted family, and needs all the safe-guarding which family life demands. And the politician who, either through folly or by s...
